Re : APS or not?

<t>I will jump in as well. My hemotologist told me to expect that my levels would fluctuate throughout my life. On my test (taken 10 months after my youngest son was born) my IgA's, IgM, IgE, and IgA all came back very high as well as my fibroigon (yeah I can never spell this word). Not just a littl...

<t>I read like crazy (when I have access to books about 1 a day) but my tastes are pretty specific and if I can't get into a book, then I just can't.<br/> <br/> I read a lot of mystery books, both murder mystery, crime mystery, paranormal mystery and suspense. I also read a ton of Gothic romance, cl...

Re : More money saving tips.....

<t>really I find the key is just to take advantage of everything you have available to you. So like for us<br/> 1) we get a discount on all stuff for the dog, including free (to a limit) vet care, grooming etc..<br/> 2) I converted my hotel points to Southwest airline credits and bought some more po...

Re : Referral To Rhemutologist

Amanda

It is VERY VERY VERY common for a positive ANA to suddenly turn up. Many people diagnosed with things like lupus, RA, etc have negative tests for years (but symptoms) and then suddenly the test goes positive. No one is really sure why but its extremely common.

Re : Chances of needing Mag?

<t>I had mag the first time, non the second. I do not know what my doc's guidelines were for the mag but it had to be pushing 150/110 when it started (since I was sitting at 150/98 at the beginning of my labor)<br/> <br/> My BP was well controlled positionally in my 2nd labor, so as long as I stayed...

Re : Fibroid on outside of uterus

Unfortunately, the fibroids did not shrink after the pregnancy and she was advised to NOT have any more c...
